An important reminder for all Adventurers;
MANY people have changed their form to NOT look entirely human. Be ABSOLUTELY sure that the monster or demon you are about to attack is ACTUALLY a monster or a demon. Flesh augmentation, bionic augmentation, magica augmentation; All these procedures are available across the continent and CAN result in forms and presentations that are not "classically" human.
If a person is moving towards you in a non-threatening way, and they are not traditionally human looking, keep your defenses up but DO NOT strike unless you are CERTAIN of their non-humanity.
(If they are covered in gore and are slavering as they approach, that is generally a good sign you are free to attack)
